The payroll[edit]

Many years ago the late Edgar Lustgarten reconstructed this outrage as a radio programme. He concluded with the comment that,

"The 80 pounds wage roll was never recovered". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.93.199.154 (talk) 12:22, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Spelling[edit]

"Helfeld" also appears as "Hefeld".

Ethnicity[edit]

Every source used in the article to mention the perpetrators' ethnicity states that they were Latvian. Not a single source asserts that they were Jews. Despite this, one recently-created account has repeatedly removed their description as "Latvian", adding an unsourced assertion that they were "Jewish immigrants". The editor's only other edits consist of reverting my own edits, and adding unsupported or weakly-supported ascriptions of Jewish ethnicity to other historical figures. Can we please put a stop to this game of "Hunt the Jew", and stick with reliably-sourced information? RolandR (talk) 13:41, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
